DraftExpress: Damian Jones is a 6-9, long-armed pogo stick with phenomenal instincts defensively. Runs and finishes well. Plays with great energy. #eybl

DraftExpress: Two of the best prospects in HS basketball, Julius Randle & Jahlil Okafor, going head to head. But the guy who is dominating is Damian Jones

DraftExpress: @reggieprimetime Seen enough of Winslow to know he's an absolute stud. Randle is putting on a show here. Liking Damian Jones' defense too.

High School Class of 2013: Elite Prospect Scouting Reports, Part Two
September 12, 2012
Jonathan Givony

Recruiting Rankings: ESPN: #72, Scout: #99, Rivals: #79, 24/7: #21

-Very long wingspan
-Frame that will fill out in time
-Terrific instincts defensively
-Excellent athlete
-Runs floor extremely well
-Very quick second bounce
-Goes well out of area for offensive rebounds
-Makes plays above the rim thanks to his solid leaping ability
-Capable of stepping out and knocking down a mid-range jumper
-Shot 73% from the free throw line in the EYBL
-Has no strength to establish position, but fights for space inside regardless
-Tremendous shot-blocking instincts

-Very limited offensively
-Frame might take 4-5 years to fill out
-Doesn't have the strength or footwork to play with his back to the basket
-Might struggle to defender stronger centers in college. Does not appear to be agile enough laterally to guard power forwards
-Doesn't box out on the defensive glass

Outlook: Springy big man with terrific length. Plays with very good energy and makes his presence felt regularly on the defensive end. Still a long ways away strength-wise and in terms of his offensive polish, but has excellent potential to grow into as he continues to mature physically.
